The Halloween season is one again upon us, which means that it’s time to jump into our favorite android horror games on PC with BlueStacks, and start basking in all the spooky goodness that they have to offer. However, in a genre with so many different games to offer, how can we possibly know which are the best ones? Well, while the quality of these games is usually subjective, we’ve compiled a list of the top 10 mobile horror games that you can play on BlueStacks this Halloween season if you’re looking to enjoy some awesome spooks and thrills.
1. Dead by Daylight Mobile
Starting off this list is what could be the arguably the most popular game in its sub-genre. Dead by Daylight started off on PC and consoles, and is an asymmetrical survival horror game where one player takes the role of a powerful killer, while the rest of the users play as survivors. The former must hunt the latter down, while the latter must collaborate to solve the puzzles in each map and find a way to escape.
The joy in games like these come from the player interactions, as no two matches will ever play out the same. Especially when you’re running from the killer if they spot you, the adrenaline is always pumping when playing Dead by Daylight Mobile.
2. Identity V
While Dead by Daylight is one of the original asymmetrical survival horror games, it actually took a while for it to get released on mobile. For this reason, games like Identity V still thrive to this day, since they filled the demand for games in this genre on the mobile platform perfectly. And even after the release of Dead by Daylight Mobile, Identity V is still going strong, mostly thanks to its unique art style and distinguishing repertoire of hunters and survivors to choose from.
Because some gamers might prefer a more subdued type of horror experience, Limbo is a classic 2D puzzle platformer where you play as a small boy in search of his missing sister. To find her, you’ll have to travel through countless different areas and biomes, each with their own set of hazards and perils. The gameplay itself is pretty simple and straightforward, though the game is definitely enhanced thanks to its stellar visual and audio design, making it into a nail-biting experience, especially in the escape sections.
Limbo is already available on multiple consoles and PC, though the game usually costs around $10 to buy. However, if you play Limbo on PC with BlueStacks, you can get it for a much cheaper $4, and still enjoy a similar experience by playing it on our Android emulator. In fact, as of this Halloween, Limbo is selling for as low as $0.99, so you should definitely get it if you’re interested.
4. The Baby in Yellow
For some people, babies are already quite creepy in the way that they often glue their eyes on you and never stop staring. This simple horror game takes this premise to the extreme, by featuring a horrifying wide-eyed weird baby staring intently at you while you try to figure out the puzzles in each stage and try to stay alive.
The Baby in Yellow will take you through 5 thrilling chapters where you’ll need to figure out the puzzles to advance, while also keeping an eye out for collectables through which you can unlock a variety of cheats and fun modes. However, you’ll also need to watch out for jump scares as they are quite common and often very startling. In fact, if you’re not into jump scares, in general, you should really steer clear of this game.
While babysitting is usually an easy job, this one might actually be your last. Are you prepared to do what it takes to survive?
Imagine this simple concept: You’re stuck in a haunted house, and its only resident is a ghoulish-looking old lady that aimlessly shambles around the house, listening intently for signs of movement. This is the core premise of Granny, as you’ll need to navigate the house in a first person perspective, while avoiding the titular creepy old lady as she shuffles around the place. To this end, you’ll not only need to work fast to pick up all the necessary items to free yourself, but you’ll also have to stay quiet and hidden at all times to avoid the gaze of the titular geriatric huntress.
6. Into the Dead 2
Infinite runners are by no means a new concept, especially when you consider the popularity of games like Subway Surfers. However, no other game has done it quite as uniquely as the Into the Dead series, which combines the fun auto-running elements of the genre, with survival horror aspects, as you’ll have to steer across zombie-infested fields while also shooting at the enemies that stand in your way, as well as avoiding the ones that you can sidestep in order to save ammo.
There are many weapons to find, and also many different setpieces to enjoy as you make your way through the different stages and environments. The only common element in each of these is that you’ll have to do your best in order to avoid the encroaching zombie horde and survive for as long as you can.
There’s a lot of fun and variety to be had as you run across the levels in Into the Dead 2. And if you play it on PC with BlueStacks, you’ll have access to the best controls so that you can aim and shoot with absolute precision using your mouse and keyboard.
A game that, just like Granny, has a very simple premise: You’re trapped in a building with spooky monsters hunting you, and the goal is to find the clues and eventually escape with your life. This one is more of an arcade gaming experience as it doesn’t have much plot, though this doesn’t make it any less fun. As such, it’s more of a casual horror game for those who want a quick fix of the spookiness.
One of the best aspects of Eyes is that it has a variety of monsters to choose from—and even gives you the choice to create your own monsters—as well as multiple maps and game modes to enjoy. This means that you won’t be running out of things to do anytime soon!
This game takes the formula popularized by the now-iconic Five Nights at Freddy’s franchise, and translates it to a more focused and cohesive experience, revolving around a person that must survive several nights in their bedroom as they are accosted by horrifying creatures of the night. In this sense, to stay alive, players must use their powerful flashlight to shine lights on the enemies as they pop up into view, in order to prevent them from advancing.
Insomnia offers a very tense gaming experience that is only elevated by the great visuals and fantastic sound design. You won’t want to stay in the dark after you’ve played this game.
9. Dead Effect 2
Because not every game has to have the atmospheric and “slow burn” aspects of most psychological horror titles, Dead Effect 2 simply puts you in the shoes of a heavily armed soldier, and lets you run and gun through tons of different aliens and nasty creatures in order to progress and win the levels.
This title is more of a power fantasy for fans of FPS games, but with a horror twist. Think of it as Doom meets Dead Space, but for phones.
10. Hello Neighbor
Last but not least, one of the most iconic horror games of the past few years. In Hello Neighbor, the goal is to break into your unsuspecting neighbor’s house to try and discover the spooky mysteries within. In order to progress, you’ll need to collect equipment, keys, and other items as you make your way across the house unlocking doors and passages, and eventually solving the mystery within.
In actuality, while the game is quite tense as you make your way through the neighbor’s house and uncover its secrets, Hello Neighbor is more of a mystery game rather than a horror title, which is further driven by its cartoony and colorful visuals. Nevertheless, it CAN get quite hectic, especially when you run into the titular neighbor and must try to get away from him before he can catch you and throw you out.
